Writing a descriptive paragraph
is something you need to practice. Try taking a walk and thinking about
what you see. When you write, use adjectives, adverbs and prepositional
phrases. Tell what kind, how and where, and you will paint a clear
picture of the place you are describing.
Also, create a mood by choosing your words carefully. Remember to use the same verb tense throughout your paragraph. If you follow these steps, your paragraph will be more effective.
Here is an example of a short descriptive paragraph.
Many signs of spring are showing at the New Westminster Quay. Tiny birds are chirping cheerfully on the tables. Mallard ducks are gliding gracefully across the water. Pretty pansies are popping up proudly in the flower beds. Pink rhododendrons are blooming profusely near the buildings. Small children are playing happily in the puddles. Fit females are running energetically on the walkway. Visiting the New Westminster Quay is an uplifting experience on a spring day.
